The Stuart Mill Community Recreation Reserve is a great spot within picturesque Stuart Mill - a former gold rush town located along the Sunraysia Highway between Avoca and St Arnaud.

The reserve is very well maintained and features a large oval, playground, free undercover electric barbecue, picnic tables, beautiful gardens, and interesting statues.

There is a toilet block directly across the road behind the Stuart Mill Community Centre.

Playground at the Stuart Mill Recreation Reserve

The playground is located in a fenced corner of the reserve (although it is not completely fenced in) and has a slide, shop front, fort, fireman pole, climbing structures, monkey bars, springer toy and swings. The playground is a short distance from the fantastic undercover barbecue area.

Picnics and barbecues at the Stuart Mill Recreation Reserve

The barbecue area is excellent and features a large barbecue plate set in a bench with power points available. There's seating around the edges of this undercover area and a picnic table located alongside it.

Several more picnic tables and bench seats are scattered through the reserve, as well as large logs to sit/climb on.

There's a canteen building at the reserve but this is not open regularly, just for events.

More notable features of the Stuart Mill Recreation Reserve

A notable feature of this beautiful park during the spring time is the gorgeous assortment of flowers and blossom trees growing in and around the reserve.

Either side of the main gate stand two impressive, huge, carved wooden statues - one a shearer and the other a gold panner.
